I have created an informative report that will help answer many questions regarding installation of graphics. You can download it by visiting the Installation Tips section of the site. For questions more generic in nature, browse this list below. If you do not see your questions answered and you've already read my installation article, send me an E-MAIL!
• Where can the graphics be installed?
They can be installed on many different surfaces, including painted metal (i.e.. cars, motorcycles, etc.), glass, Plexiglas, Fiberglas (boats and personal water craft), painted wood, banners, plastics, and more.
• Can I install the vinyl graphics myself?
ABSOLUTELY. Anyone can do it. To ensure you are well informed and know all of tip and tricks of the pros, read my Installation Guide.
• Will graphics harm my car or boat surface?
The vinyl will not harm the surface. Vinyl has been used for years on cars, trucks, boats, personal water craft and more.
• Will the graphics harm tinted windows?
No. Since tint is placed on the inside of windows and vinyl on the outside, you will not have any problems.
• What color graphic would look good on my car?
Choosing a color can be difficult. That's why I have a written a Color Harmony section of the site. It will explain color harmony and give you specific examples of what colors complement each other. I also advise you to Order Samples. It's a "surefire" way to know whether a color works with your application
• The graphic isn't sticking to my window?
Windows do not have the same properties that painted surfaces have. Therefore, window graphics take much longer to adhere when applying wet. You may need to wait up to an hour before the adhesive starts to "bite" and you can begin pulling away the application tape. Be patient it WILL stick! I highly recommend you use Window Juice for glass (or other surface) graphic applications. It dries quicker and is specially formulated to work with window graphics.
• Will the decals last a long time?
Yes, as long they are installed correctly. It is critical you follow the necessary steps outlined in my Installation Guide to ensure years of enjoyment from your graphics. When installed correctly they can last for 7 years or more!
• Does certain vinyl last longer than others?
Yes. Insist on "high performance 2 mil" when ordering any vinyl. Also beware that reflective, fluorescent, and other specialty vinyl does not last as long. Usually the manufacturer will only guarantee one - two years on specialty vinyl. They do look cool though! One great thing about vinyl is that it's not paint. Just take it off and put some new graphics on.
• Do you make custom graphics?
ABSOLUTELY! We can create just about anything. Visit the Special Requests area of the site for more information.

Yes. If you don't see the size you need, simply visit the Special Requests area.
